This paper is concerned with the numerical calculation of the semi-integral and semiderivative of a function f, whose values f (xj) are known on a discrete set of abscissas 0 = x(1) < x(2) < ... < x(n). A family of product quadrature rules is developed to approximate the semi-integral d (sup -1/2) f/dx (sup -1/2) and semiderivative d (sup 1/2) f / dx (sup 1/2) at each of the positive abscissas x(j), j = 2,3,...,n. Numerical applications and comparisons with known rules are presented.
